About this episode

In today’s episode, Martin chats with Bernhard Reiterer CEO and founder of SignD Identity, the Vienna based RegTech provider. The SignD Platform provides end to end onboarding solutions with KYC / KYB and AML compliance across multiple jurisdictions built in. In our conversation, we discuss the increasing complexity and burden of compliance especially for companies operating across multiple jurisdictions. Bernhard explains what it took for him to successfully convince large incumbent financial institutions to trust his start up with their compliance obligations, develop domestic market leadership and expand internationally into other markets. No mean feat. And plenty of start up lessons and tips.
